Photographing Mountain Gorilla?

Jump to last reply

Based on suggestion, I am starting a new thread specifically directed at what sort of photography equipment would be best for photographing Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda. I have a dRebel and a 75-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM Canon lens as well as the "kit" lens that came with the camera (18-55mm f3.5-5.6). I am considering getting another lens that would be a better wide-angle zoom lens, not just for this trip but also to use as a main "walking around" lens here at home. I have considered the Canon 17-85 f4.5.6 IS USM lens. Another suggestion is a Sigma 18-125mm f3.5-5.6 for a more universal lens. Or I can just use the kit lens I already have.

I will first of all admit that I am not an expert photographer and just getting into digital since last year.

I have the longer zoom lens (75-300mm) for wildlife photography while on safari. But the Mountain Gorillas present other challenges. If anyone has any suggestions as to what lens would be my best option for photographing them, I would appreciate any advice.

I have also heard that some just do video and have happy memories from that -- and I have a small camcorder as well that I will attempt to use as well to capture motion and sounds not possible with still images.
